Welcome to Putnam County Animal Control







THANK YOU!

Donations are starting to come in and we couldn't be more grateful!

For the past several days, we have been receiving donations of the wet pet food we urgently need. As of the morning of December 5, 2016, we are housing 36 dog and 27 cats. Every donation, no matter how large or small, is truly appreciated and goes directly to the care of these animals. If you would still like to donate, we can accept donations in person at the Main Shelter location at 174 County Landfill Road in Palatka or at the Government Complex at 2509 Crill Avenue in Palatka.

Volunteer Policy Statement



The Putnam County Animal Control has several volunteer divisions and is always looking for volunteers. At the shelter, we are looking for people to walk dogs, cuddle cats, help bathe and groom the animals, take photos for our website, clean the kennels, clerical/office work, and so much more! We also need volunteers at the adoption center to help these animals find their forever home. If you, or someone you know, is interested (and over the age of 18) please click the image below to print and fill out a volunteer packet. Completed applications should be mailed to: Putnam County Government- HR Department, Post Office Box 758, Palatka, FL 32178-0758.


Donations




Donations Needed!



The Putnam County Animal Control's dedicated staff works tirelessly to ensure the safety and welfare of all the animals in our charge. Through your generosity, we can continue to improve and make strides toward our goal of becoming an euthanasia free facility. With your monetary support, you are enabling us to keep adoption fees low (only $10 if the animal is already sterile!), helping supply needed vaccinations, micro-chipping, and vet care that may not have been accessible to the animal prior to coming into our care. Donations of food, litter, and treats (no rawhide please) are always welcome. For a full list of items, click the "Our Wishlist" link below.







Spay and Neuter Program

“FLORIDA ANIMAL FRIEND” SPAY/NEUTER GRANT PROGRAM



Putnam County Board of County Commissioners is proud to announce that Putnam County Animal Control has received a grant from the Florida Animal Friend Spay/Neuter License Plate Program for $15,000.00. Proceeds from the sale of the specialty license plates “Florida Animal Friend” provide funding for these grants.

With these grant funds we were able to spay 74 cats and 90 dogs and neuter 41 cats and 62 dogs (total of 267) for low income families that reside in Putnam County. Thanks to all of the responsible pet owners, WE ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF VOUCHERS! This shows that the people of Putnam County care about the health and welfare of their pets. Thank you for helping us make this a success!
